gras or are you feeling the kind of the super bowl thing kind of taking over new orleans? >> i think in the next couple of days we have been asking everybody about the super bowl. they obviously know it's coming. but they are too busy with mardi gras right now. but i think things will die down in the next couple of days when it comes to mardi gras and then they can focus on the big game. and we have seen banners around, 49ers banners so, you know, they are ready for football. >> now, you have one set of beads so far? y need to work it. >> no, i have many, many beads. they are on the floor right now. i can't reach them. every color you can think of, green, purple, gold, and i also got thrown some beads that had little footballs on it. so we're doing well. >> that doesn't surprise me, i'm sorry to say. >> hey. when you're in rome, right? [ laughter ] >> exactly. enjoy. >> all right. all right.
5:01 am
so new orleans is like i said it's preparing for about 150,000 to 200,000 people to visit their city. more than $400 million is supposed to be coming in just from tour unfortunately alone because of super bowl xlvii. but new orleans isn't the only city cashing in on the super bowl. so is san francisco and cbs 5's elissa harrington is in san francisco with more on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, michelle. hope you're having fun in new orleans. here in san francisco buildings all over the city are lit up in red and gold but the city also expected to take in some green this super bowl. even though the host city makes the big bucks an estimated $435 million, san francisco should get a boost. the people who live and work here could see an additional $120 a year in personal income. there are a few reasons for that. according to economists, winning brings confidence and pumped up fans are big spenders. also the city has been put on a national stage. we are getting a lot of exposure right now and a lot of
5:02 am
press. that also brings confidence. and finally, food and merchandise. across the country fans are expected to spend $11 billion on super bowl-related purchases including about 8 million pounds of tortilla chips, one and a quarter billion chicken wings if you can believe that, 51 million cases of beer and countless t-shirts and other clothing. >> in general, should be san francisco a more exuberant optimistic place, good for consumer spending. >> reporter: winning a super bowl can also improve a national image. right now, if we win the super bowl, that means [ signal breakup ] more exposure a celebration if the city which could bring even more fans spending more money. [ signal breakup ] that's bragging rights. live in san francisco, elissa harrington, cbs 5. >> got a few demons in our
5:03 am
transmission line there. elissa, thank you for that report. the south bay gave a ceremonial sendoff to the 49ers as they headed for the biggs. they boarded a charter yesterday in san jose for the ride of a lifetime. as the plane taxied to the runway a couple of fire trucks bidding farewell shooting hoses at the plane. dozens of fans showed their support outside the 9ers training facility in santa clara, as well. they were decked out in 49er gear. fans waited to catch a glimpse of the players as they drove by. colin kaepernick had a little fun throwing out a few goodies. what is that a plane or something like that? as he made his way to the bus. jim harbaugh keeping a lower profile but fans didn't mind. they just wanted to wish their team the best of luck. >> and the 49ers are not going to be disappointed exploring the city a little bit. they are going to be busy. they have a busy schedule not only prepping for super bowl xlvii but also some appearances
5:04 am
and different events. right now, though, they are resting comfortably in their hotel rooms in new orleans this morning and they landed in the big easy last night. you know, they're just days away from super bowl xlvii and hopefully their 6th nfl championship in team history. now, should the day after the super bowl be a national holiday, maybe so. especially if the 49ers win. we are talking everything social media right now. facebook, twitter is just going nuts with super bowl xlvii and with more on that, is cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran. >> reporter: hi, michelle. i think the first question you asked was good, which was should the day after the super bowl be a holiday? super bowl weekend is already an unofficial holiday. but there is a petition out there believe it on to change that. the petition points out that 111 million americans watched last year's super bowl and it says by making super bowl monday a holiday, the streets
5:05 am
will be safer sunday night and people will be more productive on tuesday. people we spoke to seem to agree. >> it's all about beyonce. so yes, new orleans houston, beyonce, we should have a three- day festival. >> it should be a national holiday because most people like myself and the working class of america have to work. and i feel like that we should have the day off so we can celebrate our fellow san franciscans, whoo, 49ers! >> whoo! > >> reporter: don't count on taking next monday off though. the petition has around 2600 signatures. that's well short of the 100,000 needed for the white house to even look at it. but i grew up in japan actually and no matter what, 49ers -- super bowl monday was always super bowl monday and that's because we were a day ahead. reporting live in the newsroom, cate caugiran, cbs 5. it is 5:07. in other news efforts are continuing to identify the

5:18 am

for all the french people out there. it's laissez les bon temps rouler. that means let the good times roll. and people in new orleans know how to let the good times roll, frank. >> tres bien! well done, michelle, well done. we'll check back with you momentarily. it is 5:31. before the 9ers landed in the big easy, they got a ceremonial sendoff in the bay area in the south bay. the team boarded a delta charter in san jose yesterday for what could be the ride of their lives just a week away as plane taxied on the runway a couple of fire trucks giving them a water salute. dozens of fans also showed up to show their support outside the 9ers training facility down in santa clara. decked out 9er gear fans waited to catch a glimpse of the players as they drove by. colin kaepernick had a little fun with the fans on his way to the bus throwing a little paper
5:31 am
airplane there. jim harbaugh keeping a lower profile. he's all business right now. but the fans didn't mind. they just wanted to wish the team the best of luck. [ yelling ] >> keep doing what you doing because you got great fans out here cheering you on. >> good luck, play hard, don't give up on yourself. >> some good advice. the fans did their best to show their love as the buses finally rolled by beginning their journey to the super bowl victory hopefully. they got in last night and i would imagine are asleep although a couple of them are probably already at work now. 49ers stayed in a beautiful hotel. with more on that let's check in with michelle. >> all right, frank. well, when the players wake up this morning, hopefully they are resting tonight. but when they weak up this morning, they are going to have a lot to do here. we have been saying it all morning. new orleans really knows how to entertain so the players are going to be busy with a lot of events and appearances but they also, you know, they had to prep for the big football game
5:32 am
coming up. they are counting down to super bowl xlvii. they landed in the big easy last night and, of course, they are just days away from the big game against the ravens. we think they are going to do it. their 6th nfl championship in team history. the super bowl is bringing money to new orleans. this is the first one they hosted since hurricane sandy. parts of the city still devastated from the hurricane many years ago. they are going to be bringing in a little over $420 million from all of the out-of-towners coming in for the super bowl. and it's not only new orleans raking in the cash but san francisco is, as well. and cbs 5's elissa harrington is live in san francisco with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's no secret that sports teams bring in money especially when they win. but just how much are we talking about? well, this super bowl,
5:33 am
economists estimate that new orleans. host city will make about $435 million. san francisco could see long- term effects of the 49ers success. people who live and work here could make an estimated $120 extra a year in personal income. the reason for this, pumped-up fans are big spenders. winning the super bowl means the city would win, too. fans across the country are expected to spend $11 billion on merchandise, t-shirts, jerseys, hats, food. one and a quarter billion chicken wings, 8 million pounds of tortilla chips and 51 million cases of beer. >> it is good for the economy. absolutely it's good for the economy. you know, there's a relationship between mood and spending. and when people feel good, they spend more. >> they feel good right now. >> they feel really good right now. very excited right now. >> reporter: fans feeling really good because this is the first time the 49ers have been to the super bowl since 1995.
5:34 am
a successful season can also provide some priceless benefits and improve city image. a lot of exposure and most importantly, bragging rights. live in san francisco, elissa harrington, cbs 5. the bragging rights is worth it alone. so go 9ers. so super bowl xlvii as you can imagine is trending big time on all the social media outlets and cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran has more from the newsroom. i need you out here to put that special app on my iphone. i don't know how to do it. >> after this, i will set you up and show you how to download it and you will be all super bowl -- basically, the pinnacle of knowledge. because right now, that's what's trending. actually the first thing that's trending is that last-minute push to get tickets. so die-hard 49ers fans before you take out that checkbook or credit card, first let's look at the prices we have been tracking. on average, tickets will set you back about $3,389. roughly one could argue that's
5:35 am
about 2 months rent for a san francisco studio. the cheapest seats are $1,776. the reason they are cheaper is because you're on the upper level of the superdome. if you have money to burn, tickets will be under $5,000. these seats put you on the sidelines at the 20 to 30-yard line. here's something for the super fans whether you're in new orleans or here at home. i hope you have that on your iphone. don't worry, michelle, i'll set you up. this year verizon has all things super bowl. a guide to the events in the area as well as local restaurants. you can have it set up to have notifications sent to your phone so you can follow all the buzz. and if you are all about planning, the app also lets you set calendar alerts. going back to the tickets, the prices meaning the ones in the thousands are actually $100
5:36 am
down from a week ago. but according to "huffington post" article i just read, prices are expected to drop hours before kickoff. but the question is, would you really want to wait that long? so reporting live in the newsroom, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> some people may wan to. all right. thank you so much, cate. let's take it out to lawrence. the sun is finally up out here so i may have to shed this coat but i feel the humidity coming in. you can tell with my hair. >> your hair looks perfect michelle. that's the right answer, right? >> yes. [ laughter ] >> 93% relative humidity in new orleans. out here, we are keeping things dry. our hi-def doppler checking out to see if we might have any leftover rain but not seeing any right now. a lot of cloud cover, but so far, so good. the clouds though are keeping the temperatures up around the bay area. still chilly in some spots some 30s and 40s but not bad. in fact, as we head in toward
